and not by fierce. >> mandela was born 1918 in eastern cape pro-vince, south africa. one of 13 children. he would go on to become a lawyer after a rare education in a white supremacist nation that was explicitly ordered around the oppression and degradation of the black majority of its people. mandela co-founded the youth league of the african national progress dedicated to equal rights and overthrowing the system of apartheid, the racial segregation upon which the republic of south africa had been founded. for this activity, the government armed with a vast secret police branded mandela an enemy of the state. mandela was forced into hiding. in a stunning 1961 broadcast, his first televised interview, the 42-year-old activist spoke with itn's brian woodlake. >> i asked him what it was that the africans really wanted. >> the africans require, want the franchise on the basis of one man, one vote. >> do you see africans being able to develop in this country without the europeans being pushed out? >> we have made it very clear in our policy that south africa is a country of many ra

vladimir putin who praised mandela's commitment to humanism and justice. to benjamin netanyahu who called him one of the outstanding figures of our time, to iran's president, rouhani, who praised his belief in the freedom and equality of all humans. pretty much every leader in between. in the u.s. the same thing is happening. emotional eulogies have been pouring in from bill clinton to both presidents bush, from susan rice to condoleezza rice, everyone is celebrating the life and mourning the loss of mandela. even arguably the most conservative member of the united states' senate today, ted cruz, released a heartfelt statement saying mandela live live in history for defenders of liberty around the globe because of his epic fight against injustice, an entire nation is now fre. senator cruz also posted that statement to his facebook page, and that is where the illusion of the bipartisan universally accepted respect and regard for mandela and the movement evaporated. the comment thread that follows ted cruz's respectful eulogy is not pretty. it's just teeming with stuff like this. go home, t

[ shots ] >> cease-fire! >> find the guy. you'd better find that! >> we no longer accept the authority of a state that makes war on its own people. >> march 21st, 1960, 69 black south africans were shot and killed in the township of sharpeville, protesting what were known as the pass laws, legislation designed by south africa's apartheid government to control the movement of black south africans. the laws required all black men and women to carry what was essentially a passport containing all their personal details, and anyone caught in a public place without this information would be arrested. on that day, 53 years ago, thousands of black south africans showed up to the sharpeville's police station without their passbooks with the sole purpose of being arrested. they thought this would cause prisons to become overcrowded, labor to halt and grind the government to a halt. instead, it became a blood bath, the sharpeville massacr

passing of his personal hero, nelson mandela, an event that msnbc will be covering for the rest of the evening. i have covered two great events in my career. one was the fall of the berlin wall in 1989 and the other was the election in south africa five years later. i was there when the black majority voted by the millions, stretching from one horizon so the other. i saw firsthand the devotion to democracy and the great legacy of the man who died today. president obama paid tribute to nelson mandela today. through his fierce dignity, an unbending will to sacrifice his own freedom for the freedom of others he transformed south africa and moved all of us. embodied the that countries can change for the better. his commitment for the power and reconcile with those who jailed him set an example for all humanity to aspire to, whether in the lives of nations or in our own personal lives. >>> i promised you the president of the united states, and he's here. let's play "hardball." ♪ >> it's my honor to introduce the president of the united states. >> hey.
